For those of you who followed my first Inktober post, I’ll cut to the chase and cough up the sketches! For those who haven’t, either follow the above link or scroll to the bottom of this post to see what it’s all about!
Day 4 : “Cactus Cat”
Yes, I know it says day 3. I never said I could count. This was a tricky prompt to get inspired for, but I always love a good cat- even the prickly personalities.
Day 5: “Siren”
This is my favorite ink so far! I wanted to do something a bit different, So I have a lovely sea lady enjoying her maelstrom coffee.
Her favorite brew is trouble; the taste of stormy seas of cream and sugar.
Day 6: “Gorgon”
Unfortunately my most rushed piece of the month so far. The original prompt was Dire Wolf, but I just couldn’t get Game of Thrones out of my head. I picked Gorgon from the extra prompt list. Here we have a younger, more brooding species.
She’s young. Swears she liked her snakes before they were cool.
It’s been a great week so far! I, along with some great friends, have been taking part in Inktober.
If you haven’t heard of Inktober, it is a yearly event for the entire duration in October, when artists of all skill levels get together and attempt to draw every day of the month. There is an “official” Inktober list, but there are hundreds of customized lists. I found the one above, #mythicalinktober by @Frenone, and knew it would be the one to inspire me for the month.
If you enjoy drawing, please don’t hesitate to join in! Just draw your heart out and throw it up online with the hashtag #inktober. Several sites are observing it, but I mainly use Twitter.
Inktober is a fantastic experience and is especially helpful if you’re in a drawing rut. Sometimes you need someone to give you an idea!
